The Arizona State football program landed the youngest commitment in the school’s history Tuesday afternoon.

According to ASUDevils.com, 14-year-old Loren Mondy committed to come play football in Tempe.

Graham developed a history with the Mondy family when the father played for the coach in high school and at NAIA East Central University.

“I went to the Arizona State (satellite) camp at Sam Houston (State) and coach (Todd) Graham saw me and loved me and asked me if we could come down there so we did last weekend,” Mondy said. “I was hoping to get offered and it happened the first day we were there. Coach was like, ‘if you want to play with me I’m all with it. But if you commit with me you’re going to have to talk to your family and really think about it and you can’t be going to everyone else’s school and camps and things.’

“So I talked with my parents and my dad’s girlfriend and decided to commit to him because he’s a man of his word. I’m really excited. Coach was talking about me going to that school I was getting goose bumps. I was so excited. I’m really happy about it. My dad is really happy about it too.”

The 6-foot-1, 233-pounder is attending Mansfield Lake Ridge High School in Texas and will begin his freshman year of high school this fall.
